This Poké Mart is located inside the Pokémon Center.
Spikemuth is the only leg in the Gym Challenge without a stadium or a Power Spot to facilitate Dynamax. Instead, the player's challenge begins soon after passing the Pokémon Center, where they must fight a gauntlet of Team Yell Grunts, who reveal themselves to be the Gym Trainers of Spikemuth and formed Team Yell to support the Gym Leader's younger sister Marnie. Occasionally, a Kantonian Mr. Mime will block the path with an invisible wall, forcing the player to defeat a Grunt before they can proceed.
During the post-game, Marnie is revealed to have accepted her older brother's request to replace him as the Spikemuth Gym Leader, and can be challenged to an exhibition match at the Gym.
